With Qatar set to host several major tournaments and events in the upcoming year, an influx of visitors is expected to flock to Qatar including visitors from China and other Asian countries.

Tarek Fawzi, QIB, Wholesale Banking, Group General Manager said, “We are pleased to be working with UnionPay to give access to more mobile payment technologies in Qatar. This partnership will play an important role to further promote digital payments in Qatar by offering advanced, secure, and efficient payment processing services for all UnionPay cardholders and ensuring smooth cross-border payments.”

James Yang, UnionPay International, Middle East, General Manager said, “We are proud to be joining forces with the leading digital bank in Qatar to provide several payment opportunities to our cardholders, particularly visitors to Qatar. Through this joint venture, we are close to achieving full coverage in Qatar for UnionPay cardholders in line with our strategy to address the growing demand for contactless payments around the world.”
